Jury: Fraud put Obama on ’08 ballot

Democrat officials convicted of making up names for qualifying petition. Two Democrats in Indiana have been found guilty of submitting unauthorized names on the petition that placed then-Sen. Barack Obama on the 2008 presidential election primary ballot, meaning he likely did not qualify.

Fox News reports the jury in South Bend found guilty on all counts former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic Party chairman Butch Morgan Jr. and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe.

The two faced accusations of petition fraud and forgery, as well as falsely making a petition. The verdicts raise anew questions about election fraud by Democrats, a subject that was analyzed after the 2012 election.
